I am aiming to qualify as a psychologist and personal trainer, in order to aid the development of young persons from difficult backgrounds.

by R J Shepherd in Falmouth, England, United Kingdom

I currently work as a tutor for students who are not accessing schools, or require additional support due to personal and/or medical difficulties. I also work within the crèche of a young parent's support group.

Having volunteered/worked in a variety of camps over the world, I have witnessed the importance of social, educational and physical well-being; on the personal development of individuals and groups. 

Next year, I will begin my MSc in Psychology and also aim to begin my personal training qualifications. As my self employed work can be sporadic throughout the year, my progression would be significantly supported by any generous donations. 

All donations/funds will be used to either fund these qualifications, or the future project which I aim to start up.

Through this future project, I wish to provide support for the development of young persons and young adults who find themselves in difficult situations, or have struggled with childhood trauma. It will support those in need, with academic education, physical education and mental health support. Some dietary education will also be provided by the future project. 

All of this will become possible, if I am able to receive the required training over the coming years. 

Having helped with the education for individuals in difficult positions - and benefited from counselling and personal training myself - I have first hand seen the impact that quality support in these areas can have on the life of individuals. 

All donations, small or large, will be greatly appreciated by myself and those I am able to help in the future. If you had even the smallest impact on encouraging the positive development of a young person, how good would that feel?

Let's make 'Childhood development support (training)' happen
